This issue of the IAFOR Journal of Cultural Studies features contributions that range from today’s political protests to Chinese Jade mythology, from the culture of TV to questions of gender politics in education. As such, the diversity of the contributions speak for the breadth of cultural studies and its subjects; but by no means does it make the topics arbitrary; rather, they display a certain contingency. When read together, the texts engage each other, revealing manifold common threads and methods.
